How Compassion International Helps
Compassion is responding to the global food crisis with both immediate and long-term initiatives.
In the short term, Compassion provides food packages and/or cash transfers to families at risk of food insecurity.
Compassion supports long-term food security by equipping families with seeds, fertilizer, livestock and training on how to build and maintain home gardens, as well as how to increase food production through small family farming efforts.
Relief supplies are distributed through partnerships with local churches, which means aid is delivered by neighbors to neighbors. When help arrives, it’s a familiar face at the door.
Compassion’s local church partners also provide routine health screenings for children so they can respond immediately to new or developing nutritional needs.
Our local partners use mobile money transfers to send cash directly to families. It’s a secure, discrete, cost-effective and dignified way to get aid to those who urgently need it.
These initiatives help families return to normal so children can experience healthy development and thrive in their God-given potential.
Join other food heroes to help address life-threatening hunger needs caused by the global food crisis and to provide:
- Food kits that include essentials like rice, eggs, meat, milk, corn and other nonperishable dry goods.
- Medical therapeutic feeding for babies, children, or youth, caregivers and siblings.
- Nutrition assistance for pregnant mothers and infants.
- Preventive and income-generating activities that help address food insecurity long term.
